The developers of Real Time Gaming – or RTG for short – entered the Online Casino Market as early as 1998, making them one of the first software providers to ‘go online’ and are as such somewhat of a pioneer in that field. They have around 300+ Games, most of which are Video Slots, offer a Mobile platform, and advertise Live Casino Games – i personally haven’t found any, so assume those are only available in the Asian market. Their Games can be integrated into an existing platform (such as a Sportsbook, or any Multiplatform Casino Suite), or delivered as a Fully Integrated Download/Instant Play Casino, and in most cases you’ll find the latter: somehow there aren’t many Casinos with mixed software, that offer RTG Games as well.
Aside from the above, they also develop Land based Kiosk devices, and have a sister company facing the Asian Market, which was launched in 2006. The Mobile Gaming Lobby is pretty advanced, and i personally found them to offer one of the smoothest and most fluid software experiences available to date, but that is more or less their only perk. They only recently started to develop some new and interesting Slots again, after a long period of cloning, which is a shame. And despite the fact that their Games are pretty wide-spread (you’ll currently find them in around 100 Online Casinos), they don’t really have a good reputation.
The problem with most of their licensees, is that they are almost all represented in a weak (to say the least) Jurisdiction, which directly influences the fact, that historically, most of the infamous Rogue Casino‘s were RTG powered ones. You can read all about that on the the Casinomeister forums, and if you check the Accredited list, you’ll notice there are only a handful of RTG Casinos present.
The other side of that coin (weak Jurisdiction) meant that despite the UIGEA affair, the RTG powered licensees were allowed to keep offering their Games to USA players, and for long was about the only Casino software available to them, so they did have a steady market there. Now that that market has been opening up again – and Proper Licensing and Responsible Gaming is becoming more and more important, worldwide – we will probably see more Multiplatform Casinos adopting RTG games, and less ‘cup-‘o-cacao’ (Curacao License) Stand Alone RTG’s, to get with the times, so to speak.
